Canada - Canadá

English Ryhna Thompson has been the Founder and President of many businesses in the cultural and creative industries. Under the banner of her company Envision Management & Production, she and her team develop, manage and produce boundary-breaking musical and multi-disciplinary artists, productions and organizations. She has worked with cutting edge, internationally recognized artists such as Kid Koala, Amon Tobin, Bell Orchestre, Esmerine and many others. Ryhna works with artists to conceive, produce and manage projects in the realm where music intersects with film, animation, theatre, literature and interactivity, and in the context of building long-term careers. She helps artists to define their goals, to create an infrastructure within which an authentic artistic vision can be nurtured, realized and protected, to build and direct teams, and to ensure that they are stakeholders in their success. Recent projects include Kid Koala’s Nufonia Must Fall, a graphic novel presented as a feature length film, performed in real-time, on-stage by a team of 12 puppeteers, musicians and crew, accompanied by a live soundtrack. Now in its 4th year of touring, it has been presented on 5 continents. MERJ Media, a company she co-founded that produces projects combining scratch, sketch, script and screen, recently premiered its animated breakdance video game Floor Kids on Nintendo Switch. Always keen to contribute to her communities, Ryhna sits on numerous non-profit boards to support a healthy, sustainable, positive and innovative creative economy.
